GMA News TV’s Wagas continues to inspire viewers to believe in the power of true love as it celebrates its third anniversary through three big stories set in three of the most picturesque places in the Philippines—Ilocos, Bicol, and Kalinga.
Benjamin Alves and Alessandra de Rossi bring to life the love story of Laura and Jun in “The One Who Got Away” with the beautiful Bangui Windmills and historic Paoay Church in Ilocos as bqckdrop.
Laura is Jun’s first love but fate seems to have different plans for them as the two would go their separate ways. Years passed and their paths would once again cross. Laura and Jun will have to decide if they would continue from where they ended or if they would just accept that they are just people who happen to love each other at the wrong time. The story is made more special as it was shot against the most historic and scenic spots in Ilocos Norte.
A love story as hot as the Bicolanolabuyo features Dennis Trillo and Sam Pinto. “Ang Turista at Probinsiyana” is the two-part episode set in the Bicol region and tells the story of Rome and Mhaycee who meet through their travels and eventually find themselves falling for each other. Yet as their relationship deepens, details from their past surface putting their love to a test. The story airs on Feb. 20 and 27.
Meanwhile, Whang Od is known to many as the country’s last mambabatok. Yet beyond her talent in making traditional Kalinga tattoos, Whang Od apparently holds a beautiful love story. On March 5 and 12, Whang Od, as played by Janine Gutierrez, will share this tale for the first time in Wagas’ episode “AngPag-ibigni Whang-Od”.
As part of its third anniversary celebration, Wagas is also holding a Director’s Cut Screening of all the episodes featuring Alden Richards at 7 p.m. today at Eton Centris in Quezon City.
